Carbotech Ceramic Performance Brakes for Ford Crown Vic Cruiser
Rotor-friendly aftermarket brakes last 2 to 3 times longer than original equipment

Concord, NC -- Carbotech introduces the aggressive Bobcat 1521™ -- an application-specific upgrade for the Ford Crown Victoria sedans with a police package. Engineered to stand up to the extreme day-to-day driving conditions of law enforcement, Bobcat 1521 delivers near-perfect linear torque production for consistent braking force in a wide operating temperature range (from ambient to 900F) -- without ABS intervention.

Backed by multiple Autocross National Championships, Carbotech Bobcat 1521 brake pads are uniquely designed to deliver agile handling, added control and a greatly extended service life. In fact, Bobcat 1521 has been found to outlast original equipment brake pads by 40% and as much as 200%. In addition to delivering up to three times the mileage of conventional brakes, Carbotech brake pads are also engineered to protect rotors. That means cruisers spend less time in the service shop, and more time “in service” than with competitive products.

“Our Carbotech brake pads have lasted three to four times longer than the factory pads, which has reduced the frequency of brake repair jobs,” said Police Chief Christopher Collins of Willoughby Hills, Ohio. “And when you factor in the increased uptime of the cruisers available for service, we are projecting significant annual cost savings.”

Carbotech’s industry-leading engineering addresses the limitations of conventional friction technology with a proprietary ceramic and metallic construction -- in a range of compounds that out-perform competitive brakes. In fact, these brakes are made from a proprietary formulation of compounds that offer higher initial bite, torque and fade resistance -- providing consistent brake modulation and performance over a wide range of operating temperatures.

Carbotech brakes deliver:

  • Assured stopping power
  • Increased overall performance and handling
  • Unsurpassed modulation and release characteristics
  • Better control entering the corners
  • Longer brake pad and rotor life—for less “out of service” time
  • Non-corrosive dust
